beds_for_elderly

With so many options online, finding a good mattress is a difficult endeavor. However, this is especially true for seniors over the age of 50. This population experiences more chronic pain than most, particularly in the areas that are most injured during restless sleep such as neck, back, hips, and knees. Luckily, most mattresses these days can be ordered and shipped directly to any door in the US, which is convenient for elderly seniors!

Here are our picks for the 5 best mattresses for elderly people to consider:

1. Nectar

For those looking for a good bed with an affordable value, Nectar should definitely be a contender. This mattress features gel memory foam and standard memory foam, to conform to the body without sagging over time. The cover is cotton, which helps offset the hotness that memory foam mattresses usually have. It has a firmness rating of “medium firm” (6/10 on the firmness scale), which is best for back and stomach sleepers and those who are average or heavier weight. It also isolates motion, which is good for couples.

2. Purple

Purple has taken the internet by storm with their innovative gel structure, which is very different from traditional memory foam boxed mattresses. This mattress is great for several reasons: the gel base allows for better spinal alignment and offers better back support than a traditional memory foam mattress. It will wear down less over time and will sleep cooler. Purple’s design also creates motion isolation so other movements on the bed like pets or spouses won’t wake anyone up. This mattress, although great, is definitely on the higher end of cost.

3. Layla

Layla is a great mattress for seniors who are more in the lightweight category. The memory foam is copper infused which helps provide cooler sleep. It also features a thermogel infused cover which provides head dispersion to help battle night overheating. Another added benefit is that the mattress is flippable: medium soft on one side and firm on the other, which is perfect for people who don’t quite know what firmness level they need. This mattress is best for all weight categories, side and back sleepers and those with fluctuating firmness preferences.
